("... Two years ago Congress authorized the purchase of two used roll-on/roll-off ships to improve the military’s ability to deliver military equipment and supplies to forward locations. As of now, no used ships have been purchased, Wittman said last week while talking after an appearance at the McAleese and Associates Defense Programs Conference." etc.)

after almost seven years of watching, I began to appreciate the connection between the Pentagon and a certain theme park, LOL

maritime reconnaissance aircraft near Alaska on March 9.

said Tuesday that the Russian aircraft came within 50 nautical miles of Alaskan coast and remained within the Alaskan Air Defense Identification Zone over international airspace for roughly four hours.

The Russian aircraft were escorted the entire duration of the flight in the ADIZ by NORAD’s F-22s and CF-18s, which were supported by a KC-135 Stratotanker and E-3 Sentry aircraft, a news release detailed.

The Russian aircraft never entered U.S. or Canadian airspace and remained over the Beaufort Sea, NORAD said in a release.

“NORAD continues to operate in the Arctic across multiple domains,” Gen. Terrence J. O’Shaughnessy, the commander of NORAD said in the release. “As we continue to conduct exercises and operations in the north, we are driven by a single unyielding priority: defending the homelands.”

Intercepts of Russian aircraft have been a contentious issue between NATO and Russia, especially as tensions with Moscow remain strained over Russia’s support to separatists in east Ukraine and its aggressive actions countering Turkey in Idlib province, Syria.

While alarming, NATO’s Supreme Allied Commander Europe and commander of U.S. European Command, U.S. Air Force Gen. Tod Wolters said in June 2019 unsafe intercepts between NATO and Russian aircraft have decreased over the past two years, and are in most cases safe.

now says
  • USFF and Commander, U.S. Pacific Fleet will task respective Type Commanders to analyze alternative minimum safe manning levels to ensure sustained forward-deployed operations. Considerations should include proper watch-team manning and sufficient numbers of qualified watch team s to support sustained operations at sea.
